The Future Is Now! (new inventions that are amazing)

Saturday 14 May 2011
Artificial Solar Leaf

 


An artificial leaf that mimics the process of photosynthesis. This technology broke news a few weeks ago and will possibly change the world.
One can envision villages in India and Africa not long from now purchasing an affordable basic power system based on this technology,” Nocera said





Printing A Human Kidney




A 3D printer that uses living cells to output a transplantable kidney. Using similar technology, Dr. Atala's young patient Luke Massella received an engineered bladder 10 years ago.






Human Exoskeletons



Eythor Bender of Berkeley Bionics brings onstage two amazing exoskeletons, HULC and eLEGS -- robotic add-ons that could one day allow a human to carry 200 pounds without tiring, or allow a wheelchair user to stand and walk






Flexible Transistors






This technology will completely change the computing/digital world as we know it once fully developed. Devices that were once specialized: GPS, television, home computers, cell phones, PC's, game systems, paper and pencil, schoolbooks and more will all be packaged in one device and this technology is key to that end.










Brain-Machine Interface






A machine and human cooperation beyond today's borders. The potential applications for this seem almost endless. Pretty surreal to think they are working on technology we can control with our thoughts. I mean, really? That sounds like something only found in science fiction






Bio-Gel Fridge



This fridge makes use of a special gel-like substance to keep your food cold and fresh. The substance is odorless and non-sticky so you can put things in and take them out just as they were, without having any additional greens on your food.

    Technology is so amazing these days.

    @Dejch no the human exoskeleton is real. the inventor was on the daily show. love that bio-gel fridge!

    Holy shit. Some of that stuff is amazing, particularly the kidney. That's interesting to me because I'm a med student lol but the fact that a printer has the ability to keep cells alive and then lay them out to make a functioning kidney which has quite a complicated anatomical system and histology is beyond amazing.

  1. Technology is just getting more intense day by day! Pushing the boundaries to the max level!

  1. Great blog! Keep the posts coming, i enjoy reading them!

  1. That's pretty incredible. My bio fridge would still be empty though.

    I heard about the kidney printer from this one girl in my class, I thought she was crazy, but now I think this could be done. All of these are amazing!

    This stuff is getting weirder and weirder. Pretty soon people can just buy and 'equip' a kidney on-the-fly!

    Aweeesome! I love the gel fridge. I remember seeing this somewhere before.

  1. that fridge! i want it!!

  1. Damn these have got me excited about the future.

    amazing, love the fridge!!

  1. Alexandra said...:

    Ohhhh I heard about some of these too. I really like the 3d printer, that just shocking lol!

  1. ds said...:

    That bio-gel fridge looks amazing! Also the artificial photosynthesis has great potential.

  1. interesting stuff!

  1. I want my Brain-Machine interface! everything will be more easy.

  1. Duh, I mean easier :D

  1. Endless said...:

    fridge is awesome! love the idea of putting my stuff into a giant pudding :D

    "Human Exoskeletons" Theres a whole lot of potenial there hopefuly the army will take it and build upon it with it's huge ressorces and maybe in 20 years time it will be a common thing for the disabled or otherwise challanged people :]

    Bio-Gel Fridge was quite a suprise sound sooo futuristic and not to mention it would look freaking awesome :D

  1. i want that fridge!

  1. BigMike said...:

    It is all about the fridge.. but the solar leaf is nice also ;)

  1. that is so awesome! Our science is great =D

  1. Jay Reid said...:

    Need that fridge, thing is though - it's probably the least important on this list, haha.

  1. I'd love to control my computer with my brain >:D

  1. I'm not gonna lie...the future is kind of creepy.
